Presence of toxic sludge and the heavy metals causing water turbidity
Constant ﬂuctuation in pH and alkalinity leading to poor water quality
Poor aquatic ecosystem affecting the health of the shrimp yield
Low quality of shrimps having a small size and low survival rate
Achieving a PL survival rate of 80% or above.
Reducing the toxic sludge build up at the bottom of the pond.
Reducing water turbidity and the presence of any heavy metals.
Reducing large ﬂuctuation in pH.
Maintaining and preventing large ﬂuctuation in alkalinity (80 – 160ppm).
Passing DOC 50 days.
Passing DOC 80 days (near harvest).
Achieving Higher Daily Growth (ADG), Higher Body Weight (ABW) at harvest and lower FCR against Control.
AQUA-Cal+ is made by ﬂash calcining a mixture of magnesite and dolomite to produce a unique, very high surface area powder, and then hydrating the powder to produce a slurry for ease of application to ponds. It has been specially formulated to impact on both the aqueous and benthic ecosystems in the pond.Find out more about AQUA-Cal+
Reduces the sedimentation time, thus reduces the need for desludging
Reduces the presence of heavy metals and toxic chemicals
Controls ﬂuctuation in pH and alkalinity
Increases water clarity
Promotes algae growth
Improves self- sustainability and maintains a healthy ecosystem
Improves shrimp growth and quality of the yield
Increases shrimp survival rate
Calix’s Aqua-Cal+ is a special formulation of Magnesium Hydroxide enhanced with Calcium. It improves the quality of water and thereby promoting better and healthy aquatic life. Aqua-Cal+ is non-toxic, non-corrosive, safe to handle and environment-friendly.
A trial was taken at the shrimp pond, where a comparison was done between a Control Pond that followed standard practices as opposed to dosing of AQUA-Cal +1 and AQUA-Cal +2 in two other ponds. A comparison of the water quality and shrimp yield in all the three ponds was performed. The ponds treated with AQUA-Cal+ showed a signiﬁcant improvement in water quality and generated a healthier shrimp yield.
1 – An effective, multi-functional, non-toxic product for the environment, humans, and aquatic life.
2 – Works great with minimal desludging/water exchange practices.
3 – Promotes stronger, faster shrimp growth and higher survival rate of above 90% by preventing toxic sludge build-up.
4 – Enables shorter sedimentation time and excellent heavy metal ﬂocculation for cleaner and safer pond water.
5 – Helps to reduce FCR by promoting good algae growth.
6 – Helps to reduce or replace some synthetic chemicals.
7 – Helps to preserve the environment towards a sustainable and expandable business.
